Turkmenistan: EU Should Press Foreign Minister on Rights
Turkmenistan’s Foreign Minister, Rashid Meredov, is scheduled to meet in Brussels with EU High Representative Catherine Ashton and other high-level EU officials to discuss energy issues and Turkmenistan’s potential accession to the World Trade Organization on April 9.

“EU officials should not miss this rare, high-level opportunity to privately and publicly press for human rights improvements in Turkmenistan,” said Rachel Denber, Deputy Director for Europe and Central Asia at Human Rights Watch. “The EU officials need to make clear that Turkmenistan’s natural resources can’t buy impunity and that its appalling human rights record is hindering deeper relations with the EU.”
